By on November 7, 2018

Police are appealing for information after a man sexually assaulted two women in Knutsford.

The first incident happened on Bexton Road, Knutsford, at around 3.45pm on Thursday 11 October when a man approached a 38-year-old woman and grabbed her bottom before running off towards Black Hill Lane.

The second incident occurred on Blackhill Lane, Knutsford, between 6pm and 6.45pm on Friday 2 November when a 42-year-old woman was grabbed from behind by a man while she was jogging. He groped her bottom before running off.

The man is described as white, around 18 years old, approximately 6’ tall with a slim build and brown hair.

In the first incident he was wearing jeans, a black beanie hat and a black top/jacket.

In the second incident he was wearing a grey hoodie.

PC Lawrence Price said: “These offences have understandably caused a large amount of concern in the local community and we have stepped up patrols in the area to try to provide reassurance to the community.

“We are also seeking any witnesses who may have seen the man. We are specifically looking to speak to a couple who spoke to the victim in the second incident shortly after the offence occurred.

“If you have any information about the incidents please contact Cheshire Police on 101, quoting IML 230042, or submit information via our website at”
